REVIEW – LIKE DRAGONFLIES by K. Webster & Danielle James

SYNOPSIS

I’m the good girl from Ashton Hills.
Rich. Pampered. Spoiled.
Slowly suffocating under my mother’s stifling thumb.

He’s the bad boy from Duncan.
Poor. Abused. Criminal.
Being swallowed by the darkness each passing second.

Two lost souls searching for freedom and happiness.
We’re lonely—broken—and trapped.
Until the universe brings us together.

Sometimes love is instantaneous.

A supernova collision of emotions.
Something that cannot be ignored.

As our hearts tangle to the point they’ll never be able to part, the past comes creeping up like an evil villain. The mistakes of our parents become our consequences to face.

We’re madly, deeply, foolishly in love.
Soul mates who finally found each other.
Two people who share the same father.

*****FOUR STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

Together, we hover above the nothingness of the world. Like dragonflies. This space away from our world is the space where we belong. Together.

 

 

Mars McKinney and Sage Emerson come from two different worlds. Mars grew up in a trailer park in Duncan with his alcoholic and abusive father. Sage comes from a very wealthy family from the affluent town called Ashton Hills. It would seem as though they have nothing in common but actually they were like two lost pieces of a puzzle that fit perfectly together. Both have parental figures who have made their lives miserable and they are both two very beautiful souls with artistic gifts. For nearly twenty years Mars and Sage have never crossed paths until they both end up attending the same college, and Mars gets a job as a barista at Sage’s favorite coffee house.

Their first encounter is sweet and what you would label a “meet cute”. Mars and Sage are undeniably drawn to each other and they set off on a sweet and innocent romance. For once in both of their lives, they’ve found someone who brings pure happiness and light into their world. But then weeks into their relationship Sage’s mom tries to come between them. As soon as she finds out who Sage is dating she forbids her from seeing Mars, and when Sage refuses and is caught with Mars again, her mother reveals the heartbreaking truth, that Sage and Mars are half brother and sister.

 

 

The truth of their shared bloodline nearly destroys them both. Mars and Sage are overcome with despair and grief. How can something that felt so right turn out to be so incredibly wrong? How will they be able to ultimately accept their new circumstances?

I really loved how this plot was written. This was far better than the previous taboo story K. Webster wrote with a similar theme. Mars and Sage’s love story started off innocent. There was nothing wrong with their intentions.

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4
Angst: 4
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
